Spring 2017 Major League Baseball "Set Registry Masters" Premium Auction
A Canadian version of the 1962 Salada-Junket coins, the 1962 Shirriff Coins are by far the most difficult of the several different metal and plastic baseball coins issued in the first half of the 1960s. The offered Mickey Mantle, for example, is a Pop 14 PSA 6 from just 57 total on record. The 1962 Salada-Junket Mickey Mantle, on the other hand, is a Pop 62 PSA 6 from 227 total on record. The submission totals for the respective sets tell the story even more dramatically: PSA has graded 12,963 examples from the 1962 Salada-Junket issue and just 547 of the 1962 Shirriffs.
